Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-This gentle picture book takes on a common problem for preschoolers in an entertaining and instructive way. New nursery school student Billy Goat doesn't know how to join the ball game with the other animals. Although Ducky tries to give him advice, he's too shy to follow it effectively. He whispers to Bunny that he wants to play, but Bunny can't hear him. Frustrated, Billy Goat bites Bunny's tail. The same thing occurs with Lambkin, with the bite being much harder. Ducky intervenes and tells him not to bite and to speak up, which works until Billy Goat hogs the ball and bites Piggy. With everyone in tears, including Billy, Ducky teaches him to use his teeth "to bite his apple, not his friends." The sweet watercolor and charcoal illustrations are effective and the characters show real hurt and confusion. Billy Goat is clearly confused and frustrated and needs Ducky's gentle guidance. The positive approach to teaching appropriate behavior will be appreciated by adults. Pair this title with Else Holmelund Minarik's No Fighting, No Biting (HarperCollins, 1958).-B.

From Booklist

The creators of No More Pacifier for Piggy! (2008) offer another gently instructive look at a common preschool problem. Newcomer Billy Goat wants to join the nursery ball game, but Bunny doesn’t hear his whispered request, so Billy nips his tail. Lambkin misunderstands him as well, so Billy bites her arm. Helpful Ducky then explains proper playground etiquette: “You have to say, in a nice strong voice, ‘Please can I play with you?’” Once in the game, Billy has trouble sharing with Piggy, resulting in a painful chomp to Piggy’s ear. Finally Ducky clarifies the game rules, and Billy agrees to use his teeth for biting food rather than friends. Williams’ watercolor and charcoal illustrations feature lots of white space, allowing young listeners to focus on these appealing animal characters and their emotions. Preschool teachers will appreciate the inclusion of Billy’s motivations—he is not evil, just frustrated—and find this useful for teachable moments. Pair with Margie Palatini’s No Biting, Louise (2007) or perennial favorite Else Holmelund Minarik’s No Fighting, No Biting! (1958). Preschool-Kindergarten. --Kay Weisman

I am the mother of a biter, and I bought this and several other books because I was out of ideas. My daughter knows biting is wrong, she knows it hurts her friends, she knows to use her words instead, etc., but she still bites at times. She loved this book and it was like the story finally made her look at her biting from a different perspective (considering how it makes her friends feel, beyond the physical "ouch" reaction to a bite). Since we started reading this book, she hasn't had any incidents. Might be a coincidence, but when she plays with her dolls and one "bites" another, I do hear her telling the offender that the other dolls won't want to play with her anymore if she continues to bite, and that's a new concept for her (thanks to this story).

This is a good book if your child is biting out of frustration or anger. Unfortunately my toddler is biting for other reasons which are not covered in this book. It does get across that biting hurts, and my prove partially useful for my family.

I gave this book 4/5 stars. I liked the idea of the book. Showing that biting or hurting those around you can cause them to not want to be around you. I did not enjoy the illustrations. I would recommend this book for children in the younger age group of first grad and under.
